Map It Out

A blank wall in my office was staring at me for months.  Taunting me.  And begging for something to snazz it up a bit.

After awhile, I got tired of all that taunting and begging, so I whipped up a little freebie DIY wall art to add some personalized personality to that blank wall.

I found an old puzzle of a map of Dallas (woohoo!) in my “closet of random things” and mounted it on teal scrapbook paper in an Ikea frame that I had on hand.

Gotta love a free shout out to your hometown!

    I love maps as art — all the more if the map is of a place with some personal meaning.

    Very cute (and cheap!) DIY, Liz!

    Very cute – and I love the table and chairs below it. I love maps and I love puzzles – this is a great idea!

    Just found your blog and I love the map idea! The table & chairs and lamp are adorable. I’m in the Ft. Worth area so it’s nice to “meet” you.
